. >> "new york times" best-selling author of lincoln biography "team of rivals" doris kearns goodwin in between awards shows has joined us. and nbc news special correspondent tom brokaw. welcome to all of you. tom, that's where we tee it up. the president, as he begins a second term, very difficult climate in washington and very real expectations. >> yes. and i was looking at those top three priorities for the american people. and they all fit into his single most difficult task, it seems to me, both conceptually and specifically. in the next couple of years, he only has a couple of years, these are second terms and not four-year terms. you're running right up to the mid-term election frankly. there's a desperate need for the country going forward to do something about tax reform and entitlements sitting under the umbrella of fixing the economy and creating near jobs and stopping spending. that's going to be tough. we have been giving people things for a long time. now they'll have to reel them in and fine tune them, and that will take an exceptional hand in the white house to pull t
from abraham lincoln and the other from dr. martin luther king jr. andrew seattle who is with the freedom from religion foundation. mr. stittle, abraham lincoln and dr. king too two amazing american icons you want to take their bibles and remove them from the ceremony. >> i much prefer dr. king's writing on the letter from the birmingham jail where he talks about the white church standing on the sideline mouthing trivialalities and pyes irrelevancy while he does the work of the civil rights movement. >> bill: you must know that dr. king invoked god in almost every speech that he made. >> article 2 section one of the constitution which lays out the oath does not say anything about the word so help me god. it says i will preserve to the best of my ability, preserve, defend and protect the constitution of the united states period. it's kind of ironic that the president is going to amend that in the middle of it. >> bill: do you know why george washington wanted the words god so help me god in? do you know why? >> george washington did not say so help me god. the first rec
their sauerkraut. >> they were invited to a screening of "lincoln," apparently at the very last minute -- >> nobody's perfect. >> i would think when the president invites you to see a movie at the white house, you might want to go. maybe if you were disagreeable in nature, not fun and quite frankly not interested in getting anywhere on spending, maybe you would decline. look at the president. why don't i play that sound bite again, no matter what you think of his ideologically, joe, wouldn't you want to have a beer with that guy or a beer with mitch mcconnell. >> you keep interrupting. >> we should get a jar. >> should get a jar. he's a likable guy. we spent time with him. i like him an awful lot. he's ae's a likable guy. he hasn't reached out to republicans and he hasn't reached out a lot. when he reached out, they haven't come. he said his daughters don't want to spend that much time with him. he will have a lot of time to play cards. >> get merlot. >> cigarettes. will the president let them smoke? >> coming up. arianna huffington and nbc director chuck todd and "washington post," eugene robinso
the bible and today the bible is front and center again, his bible and president lincoln's bible. so you have 150 years of the emancipation proclamation and 50 years of the dream and they're represented by those two bibles today. >> gretchen: it's so unbelievable it will be the bible for president obama as he he's celebratory swearing in today. and the youth leader was asking the kids if they knew about martin luther king, jr. and of course many raised hands and what i loved was hearing the variety of answers from, he was a pastor, to he was trying to bring peace to the world, et cetera. and i thought it was wonderful that the kids, obviously, know about the lessons that your uncle brought to this nation. how do you think he would tackle the issue of gun control that we're talking about today? >> well, i believe, i remember and my family, all pictures, including dr. king, and jesus christ when he was in the garden and peter took a sword and chopped off the guard's ear trying to protect jesus and jesus put the guard's ear back on and said i'm here to do a job and it's okay, peter. and he
. >> and then you put it in the context as frank rich did with 1865, i think everybody here probably saw "lincoln" and the back and forth about slavery, which was a sea change in terms of american culture. >> sure was. >> are you surprised at the fight that is brewing and also the resistance? >> well, in a way the scab is being flicked off, and many presidents are reluctant to do that. although it's not been a very partisan issue in the last 50 years. richard nixon, most interesting of all, the year before he died in 1994 told william sapphire, his friend and former speechwriter, guns are an abomination. he said if it was up to him he would ban all handguns. it's not something he ever talked in public about while president. obviously reagan supported the brady bill. george h.w. bush resigned. >> resigned from the nra. >> 1995 after oklahoma city. yet, if you look at the history of the last 50 years in terms of presidents willing to confront this issue while in office, pretty rare. johnson did it in 1968. got a pretty watered down bill. >> harold, there's been a lot of washington analysis about ho
screening of "lincoln" last month. had mitch mcconnell, john boehner, lamar alexander attended, they were all invited, they would have joined not only nancy pelosi, harry reid but steven spielberg, tommy lee jones. as tip o'neill famously said about his political foe, ronald reagan, love the sinner. hate the sin. when president reagan would invite the speaker, tip o'neill over to the white house for drinks and raise a glass to one another. there's no shortage of parties planned around inauguration 2013. here is hoping it spills over to the next four years and both sides of the aisle make a move to be more social and more civil. and, hence, more productive. that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "the ed show" with ed schultz, starts right now. >>> good evening, americans. welcome "the ed show" from new york. republicans are raising the white flag. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> they will not collect a ransom in exchange for not crashing the american economy. >> the republican game of chicken is over. eric cantore proposes a three-month deal on the debt ceiling.
]. >> this was not lincoln, although lincoln's second inaugural is referenced early on in the speech. that was in the middle of the civil war when lincoln gave that. this is not f.d.r., we have nothing to fear but fear itself, in the middle of the gr"great depression." a speech on social justice and injecting into the main fabric of american history and seneca falls and what that meant in 1948, civil rights movement and equality and inject seneca falls and mentioned women about three different times, mentioned stonewall, which when i went to graduate school here at georgetown, stonewall was considered lefty history not in the main fabric of the mainstream books, he threw stonewall in there as if it was a military battle site. and then selma. i thought that made it a historic speech. i can see why the republicans aren't that happy with it. it did seem to be a speech that appealed to the base largely. those reasons and then finally climate, joe, the president not talking about climate in '12, in debates climate didn't come up. the journalist never asked one climate question. i think 50 years from now, climate
supported this. best selling book of the year by far. finally killing lincoln 16 months on the best seller list. premiere get any of the books free. has borough pennsylvania it is obvious the congresswoman on bill o'reilly rawas misinformed. at no time did you show disrespect to asian americans. sorry o'reilly the congresswoman wins you were insensitive. terry from redmond, oregon. bill, why would you expect the congresswoman to watch your report, they don't read the bills they vote on. bill, you experienced firsthand the hula, she's famous for dancing around the subject, but did say she would get behind jessica's law, so let's see. from hawaii, bill o'reilly, it's important for you to be right than to do the right thing. you should apologize to those you may have offended. if i apologize to everyone i may have offended i wouldn't be able to do anything else on this program, but apologize, ad. seriously, in this case, no apology is necessary. matthew, maryland, the chris christie cover of time was probably intended to demean him, but my generation thinks it's cool, and probably help him. a
there to help you. and i would also obviously abraham lincoln and par tin luther king are going to be mentioned, at least their spirit for sure. i would wiped it to women. nobody seems to ever name drop susan b. anthony or eleanor roosevelt. it might be time for that now, particularly since the president's been getting some heat of not having enough women in his second term and the women's vote contributed to his re-election mightily. >> historically speaking, how much does a second inaugural speech matter? does it set the tone? do people hold the presidential account foblable for it? >> not too many matter. abraham lincoln's is the huge exception, that with malice toward none speech but he was uttering it when it looked like the union was going to be victorious. they're important as olive branch speeches. jefferson said in 1801, we are not federalists or not republicans. we're americans essentially. and the president might want to take that kind of bipartisan tone. it's about a unity speech. and anybody who's looking for a lot of new policy ideas are not going to get any. this is about poetry
"lincoln." >> state dinners. >> the majority leader's office called later and said, yeah, we got the invitation that afternoon, four hours beforehand. but you invite congressmen and senators over, one on one, they'll come. >> there is an upside to cooperation. not every battle is one of opposition. begin to reframe the image of the party with the rest of the country, number one. at the end of the day, that's what people want to see, you working with the administration. to joe's point, you don't have to agree with everything, but you can at least stand there and show that we're trying to make the effort. so when you have the noise come out about, well, we want to block him at every turn, that plays on the psyche of the american people. >> mike, what'ses in it f in it republicans? well, the republicans' backs are against the wall. they owned the house of representatives. they have a midterm election in 2014. for those republicans saying, oh, well, we always win midterm electio elections, no, you don't. two elections ago, we get routed by nancy pelosi. >> let's get to a break. we ha
's carried n.give up the pettiness and go see the movie "lincoln." >> they are not doing it. i guess my question is what the implications? what happens if we don't get these spending cuts, because, i don't know. i'm sort of giving up on the spending cuts. we're not making it happen here. so let's say we keep kicking the can down the road and we've got 16.4 trillion in debt and in a couple of years it goes to $22 trillion in debt. give us your take on what happens to america in the neck ten years. how do you see it? >> oh, i can do that because of the brilliance that i have. let me tell you what will happen. there's a thing out there called the markets. the markets are a nebulous thing, but i'll tell you who they are. they are people who loaned us money, and they are going to say, well, you're addicted to debt, you proved that. you're also totally dysfunctional as a government. you proved that, and so since you love debt and you're going to go to 20 trillion in ten years, we love you. you're a big country. we love your t-bills, still use them, still buy them, but interest rates now will
to go with lincoln's second inaugural. >> awesome. >> 1865. >> i remember that. it was a good one. >> as i said, the video footage is a little grainy. the audio wasn't there. i was thinking of something else. there's a moment i think is kind of worth sharing because it's rare to encapsulate the failure of a presidency in to one day, the inaugural day. inauguration day. i would say that would be jimmy carter. whatever you think of jimmy carter's politics, the ideology, it wasn't a very successful presidency. and the roots of it sort of evident on the day of the inauguration for two reasons. first, his staff kind of bungled the, you know, showing proper deference to the speaker of the house, tip o'neill, for instance. crucially important guy for getting the carter program through congress. he was miffed because he wasn't treated well with tickets to inaugural festivities and balls and that sort of thing. the leadership of the democratic party in congress, carter won the nomination in an end and around them understanding the new primary rules before they did. he didn't show proper de
. now, the batman -- the batmobile started out as a concept car in 1955 called the lincoln futura, cost $250,000 to build and originally painted white. the car had a role in the 1959 film "it started with a kiss" with debbie reynolds and then the famous car customizer was commissioned to build the batmobi batmobile, paint it had black and orange and added the fire-breathing exhaust and a star is born. batmobiles that look like the original but all copies made from fiberglass. the original is steel, and the others were not used in the show. you can see it here in action. barrett jackson, the company auctioning the car said the most likely buyer is an institution, maybe an entertainment or museum. i can see it ending up in a theme park or hollywood studio. either way this is a car that became a character spawning at least five future versions. the latest one from "the dark knight rises" and in my mind though, the greatest batmobile is the first. we'll see what it sells for on saturday. >> that's what i think. adam west's car is the best one. >> yeah. it's hard. i spent a lot of time as a
gingrich sat on the couch. the health care plan is based off the 1993 bob dole and lincoln chafy health care plan, and you can go on and on down the list like that. that's what i thought was interesting to e.j.'s point. this was not really a speech about what obama wants to get done next. it was about making a philosophical case for what obama and america has already done. somewhat what i think is unusual is an enormous amount of it and -- >> already one day in. >> already unusual one day in. i want to make this sweeping statement early on here. >> please do. that's what we trade on the show. >> it will be dedicated to consolidating the achievements of his first term. getting universal health care done was a big deal, but it hasn't happened yet. it will happen almost entirely many his second term sxshgt same can be said for dodd frank, and the same can be said for the mooumt put into place when he began to endorse gay marriage, and you also saw, of course, it moving across the state. there's a lot happening now that has already happened statutorily or in public opinion, and obama is com
republican party of abraham lincoln. >> those extremists were alive and well this week, calling for the president's impeachment and saying president obama was acting like a king with his executive orders on gun safety. this kind of extremism gets them a 26% rating. do you think that really is what it's all about? or is it the obstruction or both? >> i think the rating is going to go down, ed. i think we're looking at potential for the republican party to be rated in the eyes of the american people much the way the entire congress is rated. do nothing and down in the teens. and as i said, that's suicide for the republican party. >> at the same retreat today, republicans were told by a pollster to stop talking about rape. pretty good advice, i would say. is this because the extremism takes over the discussion when republicans do try to talk about issues as sensitive as that? >> in many respects some of them do not know how to talk about it, ed. you heard what colin powell said, what you played there. i've heard what colin powell has said for the past 20 years or so about racism in
a very exclusive club next week, with members including washington, jefferson, lincoln, roosevelt, when he is nicaraguaed e inaugurated as the president of the united states. massive preparations are well under way here in the nation's capital. the whole thing kicks off tomorrow with a national day of service. chelsea clinton will be the honorary chair for that. and because january 20th, the inauguration day falls on a sunday this year, the official swearing in of president obama will take place in a private ceremony at the white house as it has to on a sunday. monday is the big day, folks. this all kicks off with a church service at st. john's church, just across the street from the white house. then on to the public. the swearing in here where hundreds of thousands are expected to turn out on what will be, i'm sure, a chilly washington day, from capitol hill to the national mall, pennsylvania avenue, for the inaugural parade. i will be there. i'm so excited. i'll be there in the thick of things. of course, many, many -- many, many of our cnn crews will be there as well. you can catch

with blanch lincoln. it's not been quite the same as the gop. i think you're going to see more of that. this is really going to play out, though, guys in 2015 and 2016, i think you'll see the fault line in the party populist versus an elite fault line. and i think you'll see him as a reformer taking on public employees, talking about having sort of tighten the belt on fiscal issues. and then you're going to see somebody who is that old-time candidate, talking about populism, holding true to the true faith. >> hey, jonathan, it's heilmann. just to play off that last point. >> yeah. >> is it not the case that if secretary clinton runs in 2016, that this division could get papered over again? she is someone who would be acceptable to both parts of the democratic -- the schism that you're talking about. so first of all, if she runs, does it get papered over again because she becomes the democratic nominee by acclamati acclamation? if they doesn't run, are there other candidates you're thinking of? >> let me take your second question first. i think those two candidates are sort of the examp
